Attitudes and Health
Demonstrates how self-confidence and right attitudes are necessary to good health. Reveals how attitudes toward seemingly unrelated happenings, such as failure to get a promotion, can prevent an individual from doing his best and even cause physical illness. For high school, college, and adult groups.
Ken Smith sez: This film tells the story of "Marvin Baker" -- "an average fellow from an average home in an average town" -- who learns that having an "attitude" can make him sick and a failure in life. Happily, by the end of the film, Marv has adopted a "better perspective" and makes the first team in basketball. Watch for the montage of people with bad attitudes, including a woman with giant shoulders and scary eyebrows, and a fat-faced man with a "tick."
